TS5C Sponsored Athlete
The flagship fund has already benefited over 130 young athletes from Somerset in a variety of sports. TS5C sponsored athletes have already achieved significant results at both County and National level, and have competed for Team GB in international competitions.

This Summer has been action packed. Starting with the 420 French nationals in Crozon which we used as preparation for the 420 Europeans in Athens. Athens was a tough event as the wind was light and shifty (apart from one day!). Since then I have won the Laser Radial event at Waldringfield Cadet week and sailed the RS200 nationals where we finished 40th (10th youth).

In a glittering ceremony on Friday 16th June at Taunton Rugby Club, ITV’s Somerset correspondent, Ben McGrail, presented awards to the county’s inspirational sporting volunteers and coaches, outstanding athletes and quality clubs at the SASP 2017 Somerset Sports Awards.

The TS5C Young Sportsperson of the Year Award, sponsored by sport’s charity TS5C, was presented to 16 year old sailor, Jamie Harris from Axbridge.

On January 4th 2017 Jamie Harris, the 16 year old sailor from Axbridge in Somerset, was crowned Cadet World Champion along with this crew mate Antonia Wilkinson. The title comes following 10 gruelling races in Buenos Aries, Argentina, where Jamie beat off strong local competition to win.
